I didn't make this recipe exactly, but I used it as a guideline for a casserole I made using Thanksgiving leftovers. I used green onions and 1/2 sweet onion instead of leeks, chopped spinach instead of peas, gravy and water instead of broth and flour, sweet potatoes instead of white potatoes. It was really tasty and hearty!
Turkey & Leek Shepherd's Pie
From EatingWell: November/December 1996
The mashed potato-covered shepherd's pie was originally created to use up the leftovers from a festive roast. This version blends peas, leeks and carrots with diced turkey, all in a creamy herb sauce. The dish is a perfect way to create a second meal with the holiday turkey but if you like, use leftover roast chicken, duck or goose.

We made this last night but used sweet potatoes instead, it was amazing ! It was easy to make and the sweet potatoes gave it some extra flavor and vitamins !
This was some of the best shepherd's pie I've made! My husband and I stuffed ourselves on it! I used a frozen veggie medley of corn, peas, carrots, and green beans as well as some fresh carrots. I also added grated Gruyère cheese to the top about 5 min before taking it out of the oven and that made the dish! Can't wait to make it again!
Very good! A little labor intensive and I felt like I was dirtying every dish in the house, but it was worth it! Nice sized portions!
